is 35 minutes. >> good morning everybody. thank you for joining us. today, we're going to be making an announcement about an important change to our national delivery schedule. i think anyone who has followed the postal service over the past couple of years know that we have been consistently making changes to our delivery schedule. it is an important part of our strategy returning back to financial stability and it is absolutely necessary to make that move. before i get into the details of the announcement, i would like to spend a couple of minutes discussing the financial reasons for this scheduled delivery change. since 2008, we have seen a steady decline in the use of first class mail. it is our most profitable product and generates the most revenue. people pay their bills online, simple, easy and free. on the other hand, people do -- still like to receive hard copy statements and bills and the fact that businesses continue to send mail to the homes and that's been pretty stable over the past few years, show people do value the mail that they receive. however, they do like to ma
allows us to invest in those things that we need to grow right now because that's also a deficit reduction agenda that's growing faster. and in order to have a balanced package that means that we've already done a lot of cuts. we've done some revenue now, and so the rest of the way moving forward we can do some additional reforms and make our health care programs work better and make them more efficient, and we can cut out programs that we don't need, but it also means that we've got to be able to close some tax loopholes and deductions that the average american cannot take advantage of, to raise the revenue, to actually do the job in a way that allows us to continue to grow. now, the reason this is relevant is because i gather and i haven't gotten this from first-hand sources, but from second hand sources in the press that our friends on the other side of the aisle, their position is we're concerned about the sequester. we recognize that just cutting the federal spending with the meat ax as opposed to scalpel is probably damaging and will damage our national security and will da
to replace it now is for us to cut social security, cut medicare, and not close a single loophole, not raise any additional revenue from the wealthiest americans or corporations who have a lot of lawyers and accountants who are able to maneuver and manage and work and game the system. i have to tell you, if that's an argument that they want to have before the court of public opinion, that is an argument i am more than willing to engage in because i believe the american people understand -- i believe the american people understand that, yes, we need to reduce the deficit, but it shouldn't just be on the backs of seniors. it shouldn't be just on the backs of young people who are trying to get a college education. it should not be on the backs of parents who are trying to give their kids a better start in life. that all of us have to participate and that, in fact, it's important for us to make sure we've got a strong national defense and that we reduce our spending in a smart way. those of us who are luckiest in the society to close a few loopholes and deductions that the average american doesn
but there are those who really back john brennan. tell us their argument, why he's the man for the job. >> reporter: well he obviously worked a long time inside the cia he clearly enjoys the confidence of president obama, serving at his right hand if you will in terms of being his counterterrorism advisor, homeland security advisor. he has been with the president since the 2008 campaign and at the white house they're clearly emphasizing john brennan's resume'. >> the president believes that john bren that is uniquely qualified as a 25 year veteran of intelligence work. 25 year veteran of the cia, to lead that agency. and, as the president's top counterterrorism advisor these past four years, he has done extraordinary work in the effort to combat al qaeda. >> reporter: among the challenges for john brennan? if he comes out critical of the cia's actions during the bush years, he risks alienating those who worked so hard fighting terror all these years, the very people that he wishes to lead, jenna. jenna: big hearing today, mike. thank you very much, mike emanuel down on capitol hill today. jon: mean
against u.s. citizens. the white house is expected to stay ahead of that controversy. last night the administration acknowledged it would give congressional committee members access to classified documents that outline the government's stance on drone strikes against suspected terrorists who are also american citizens. the report will be in the hands of those lawmakers just hours before john brennan's confirmation hearing begins, and he will be the one today who's answering questions about the legality of killing americans who are believed to be senior al qaeda leaders such as the american-bern cleric anwar al awlaki who was killed in a 2010 drone strike. critics say the strikes violate the law. >> we have a president who is doing something that even president bush didn't do which is to order the killing of the united states citizen without clear evidence of an immediate attack. >> on wednesday the white house defended the program. >> the methods that we use are designed specifically to avoid civilian casualties. i think it's fair to say that far fewer
attack. >> on wednesday the white house defended the program. >> the methods that we use are designed specifically to avoid civilian casualties. i think it's fair to say that far fewer civilians lose their lives in an effort to go after senior leadership in al qaeda. >> brennan is likely to face tough questions from members of the president's own party. democrat ron wind of oregon is one of the senators who pressed the white house to talk about its leagueness. he was threatening to delay brennan's confirmation process and wants to know about his role in the drone program. despite the pushback john brennan is expected to be confirmed as head of the cia. in 2009 he took his name out of consideration for the post after questions were raised about his views on enhanced interrogation techniques. this time brennan has already told lawmakers that while at the agency he raised objections about the policies privately. meanwhile secretary of defense leon panetta testifies on capitol hill today about the attacks on the compound in libya. this follows his dire warnings about dramatic budget cuts
